A few years ago, I was living in New York City with a very smart, beautiful, funny, outgoing, and talented woman, a woman I have grown to love.
The moment I met her, we began to fall in love.
In time, we became extremely engaged.
For a while, we had a very healthy relationship, with her being a very responsible, hardworking woman.
Unfortunately, things quickly became complicated.
Things got ugly fast, and things got out of hand.
In fact, things got so bad that she ended up getting the eviction notice.
My relationship with my wife of almost seven years ended in a matter of months, with my ex-wife becoming increasingly aggressive.
I was left with no choice but to end our marriage.
I am not a doctor, and I can’t make the decision for everyone.
I can only tell you what I have experienced over the last two years.
I cannot help but be angry with myself for leaving my wife so suddenly.
I have also had to put up with being the focus of so much hatred and spite.
I will tell you that I have found my strength.
I now know what to do to get through the rest of this season.
I know what my future holds.
I just have to make sure that I do not give up on my wife, my children, my friends, my family, my work, my career, and my life.
This past week, I have been fortunate enough to get to know my daughter, who has been with me for seven years.
She is a beautiful, smart, intelligent, beautiful woman.
I love her, but sometimes I am sad.
Sometimes I am angry, sometimes I cry, sometimes it’s the combination of all three.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who have helped me throughout my marriage to get me through this difficult time.
I want to tell you, I am very grateful for all the support that I receive from my family and friends.
The last thing I want is to go away and not be loved.
